Hi Bob-I wonder, though, if there is more to be gained (pun not intended) with "lesser" converters running at higher rates than better converters running at higher rates.
I have some gear that clearly sounds better at 88.4 and then resampled with good software. Other, older gear, running at 44.1, which I suspect has much better everything-including the converters- doesn't sound wanting.
Interesting point, but I'm not sure. In the unlikely event I'll have several hours to spare one day, I may run some tests.
My standard set up is to use pre-amps and converters (@44.1) on my Focusrite 428 and supplement these with DMP3 pre-amps (soon to be replaced by DAV) and the 8pre.
It would be an absolute thrill for me to be concerned about sample rates! It would mean I was only recording in perfect acoustics with optimum mics and placement, with wonderful musicians who had fantastic sounding instruments, through excellent pre-amps and with wonderful monitoring, oh, and clients who appreciated all the above! Can't wait really!
let us know what you reckon to the DAVs when you get them Bob.
You are getting them from Mick direct I assume?
